I think if you want it to look classy, dont do hungry howies and have that as a late night station instead if you want to incorporate it

White trash? really?  Do you use other slurs?

chocolateplease :  is it really only being of a lower socioeconomic class that can get someone designated as “trash”? My parents were very lower middle class, probably poor if I am honest about it. They weren’t trash. 

I could see if the term meant something to do with a person’s character, whether they were a good person, but calling people trash based on what they can afford?

I cannot imagine a chain restaurant pizza being classy. But I do t think weddings need to be classy.

Anonymous1063 :  I am guessing you’ve never heard this term used as an insult against someone… 

It is a derogatory term, so not sure why you’re trying to fit your family’s socioeconomic experience into it. The term though is generally used to make fun of or degrade people who usually cannot afford the finer things and instead buy/do things one may consider tacky/low class.

As with any insult, it can be used against anyone of any socioeconomic class to put them down. But generally  people associate the term with poor people, hence OPs use of it when referring to having pizza at her wedding.

ladyvk :  I would argue that it is a slur. Any insult that specifically calls out one’s race as part of the insult is and should be.

chocolateplease :  I think it was pretty clear that I was saying that my family, while poor or at least lower middle class, were in no way trash. 

I have heard the term used as an insult but I wasn’t sure what people were being insulted for. I guess I thought there had to be something more to it than just being white and poor. I didn’t think in this day and age people would label other people trash merely for being poor.
